An interesting story that is being covered by many at the moment is also a very important note for my own life as I have a personal connection to this. Recently during Steam’s Next Fest, an event that sees indie devs show off demos for their upcoming games, a particular game made some waves among those checking out the catalogue, Radio the Universe. This is a pixel-art top-down zelda-like game set in a dystopian cyberpunk-esque universe and impressed many people with it’s interesting visuals, impressive atmosphere and weighty combat.
Now to where I come into this. Radio the Universe has been in development for over 11 years and started out it’s life on Kickstarter. Lo and behold, this is the one and only Kickstarter project that I have financially supported and so seeing it suddenly come into the public conciousness after being in development for so long has been fascinating to see. I’ve been getting semi-regular updates from the developer over the many years and I always saw it as a project that would keep being added onto and never actually finished but here we are with a playable demo finally here. I for one will of course be trying it out and I am most looking forward to when it finally releases as it will feel like a real landmark in my life. 11 years… man time really does pass by.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
